I tend to avoid buying friends and family plush animals as new baby gifts. I figure that like me, the last thing they need is another stuffed bear to collect dust on an already full shelf.
But then, browsing online shop Petit Baby, I saw the new organic bears from French company Kaloo. And I changed my mind immediately. This classic boutique line of stuffed critters features 100% organic cotton fibers, hold the pesticides and chemicals. So aside from being incredibly soft and huggable, you can feel good about giving one to a sensitive newborn.
The 100% recycled round box packaging is almost as lovely as the bear inside – and, um, perfect for storing all those other stuffed animals the kid will get. -Kristen
